|Ace Young Wobbly With Mauricio & Kyle|
Taylor Armstrong continues her descent to totally MAD housewife. I'm surprised at how much we've been shown of Russell Armstrong. I thought the Taylor and Russell woes would likely be edited out for the most part.
Instead this week it seemed that Camille turned Lisa's Tea Party into some sort of intervention with Taylor. I'm not believing that Taylor was physically abused by Russell. It seems more believable, to me, that it would be Taylor who would go all Oklahoma on Russell's ass, to use Taylor's verbiage.
Knowing, as we do now, that the Armstrong's were broke, basically running swindling scams, if what I've read is to be believed, and it does seem believable, but it also makes something like wasting so much money on something as absurd as an extravagant birthday party for their 5 year old daughter, Kennedy, seem totally stupid.
Last year, if I remember right, the Armstrong's spent $70,000 on Kennedy's birthday party. This year's party looked like it likely cost a lot more than $70,000.
How much does it cost to get American Idol reject, Ace Young, to compose a song and sing at a birthday party? I"m guessing at least $100. Ace Young was one of the more amusing parts of this episode. He was hitting on Taylor with lame double entendres, like asking if she'd taken a ride on the pony yet. This had Taylor giggling like a school girl.
And then there was Ace Young singing the song. Earlier Taylor had told him it was so beautiful that it drove an entire office to sobbing tears when she played it for them. But, the song was really lame. Not a catchy tune. And Ace seemed to be a bit drunk while he sang, whilst holding his drink.
Brandi made a funny comment about Ace's drinking and singing. I don't remember the exact words though.
And then there was Russell's gift to his daughter, that for some reason the timing of the presentation had to be on some sort of Russell time table. When Russell was contradicted about when he could present the present there did seem a bit of a flash of anger that had me wondering how he would have acted if a camera was not aimed at him.
Russell's gift to his daughter was a big, full grown horse. Not a little pony. A big horse. Where are they going to keep that big horse? Horses are expensive, both to buy and to keep.
